NFM BURGLARIES-TRX-PKG


After someone broke into this north fort myers home last week -

Julie Armfield wanted another set of eyes on her belongings.

Julie Armfield

North Fort Myers

38:27 38:30

I had asked him to watch the house for me

Yesterday her neighbor was doing just that -

when he saw two teens acting suspiciously

38:47 38:52

He said they went to the front door and were knocking on the front

door looking through the windows

When he saw the teens move to the backyard instead of leaving-

he called 9-1-1.

Then called his neighbor.

37:41 37:47

I wondered what was taken, if anything had been taken, anything had

been broken so I just rushed home

Deputies beat her there.

Finding Shandarious Welch and Austin Williams attempting to get

into the house.

The deputy heard one whisper to the other - "man, we should have ran."

37:57 38:00

They did break the lock on my back door

The teens told deputies they were trying to see Armfield's son -

But Armfield says the boys aren't friends.

She's convinced the same teens are responsible for another

break in last week.

So she's taking action.

38:09 38:15

we changed our locks and were going to do some security issues were

going to get an alarm and stuff like that

Even looking into moving-

saying she doesn't want this to happen a third time.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Temperatures were held a bit below forecast levels this afternoon around Southwest Florida, as a disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere crosses Florida and even brings light rain and drizzle with it.

The best chance for rain as we head into the evening will be north of the Caloosahatchee River, in Charlotte, DeSoto and Glades Counties. Isolated sprinkles could fall elsewhere in Southwest Florida as well.

Friday will be another mostly cloudy day and even though the forecast model guidance is not picking up on it, we will have to allow for a day like Thursday, with some light rain, sprinkles and drizzle possible in some of the cloud cover.

A cold front will pass through Florida this weekend, which will bring scattered showers to Southwest Florida on Saturday. The front clears the region by Sunday, allowing for the second half of the weekend to turn out drier.

A nice stretch of weather will ensue heading into the first half of next week, with mostly to partly sunny sky conditions. Return to index of stories...
